The ABC reports that Professor Adrian Walter, presiding over the stricken ANU School of Music, has gone on indefinite leave but ominously has the Vice-Chancellor’s “full support”.
Professor Young says the decision for Professor Walter to take indefinite leave was unexpected.
“Adrian Walter has been under enormous pressure,” he said.
“At a meeting not with me, but with a group of my colleagues yesterday afternoon, Adrian indicated that he would like to take a period of leave.
“The university fully supports him in that, and Adrian will return to work when he believes he’s fit to return to work.”
